Fighting for the Compensation You Deserve

When a personal injury attorney takes a case, they work hard to ensure that your voice is heard. Here are just some of the ways that our team fights for you:

Consultation

When you first contact our law firm, we offer a free no-obligation consultation to go over the facts of your case.

Research Evidence

After our team has accepted your case, we research the evidence. From police reports, to witness statements and medical records, to photographs of the incident, we do not rest until we know the whole story surrounding your case so we can best represent you and your interests.

Why Is Evidence So Important?

Evidence helps establish who is liable for an incident. For example, in a car accident, witness statements, police reports, and photographs of the incident can show what happened. If and when we present your case in court, the judge and/or jury will know the full details surrounding your case. This will help solidify that your injuries were caused by the negligence of the defendant and that if they had acted responsibly, the accident could have been avoided.

Handling Insurance Companies

After an accident, the insurance company is sure to come calling. They are trying to find anything that might jeopardize your claim. Our team can review the insurance policy details and determine the maximum level of coverage for your case.

Preparing for Pleadings

If the defendant or the insurance company does not want to settle outside of court, we will then move to prepare a lawsuit. This will set out the legal arguments, getting the ball rolling to bring the fight inside the courtrooms. From here, the defendant will have around 30 days to answer the lawsuit, depending on what day they are served with the lawsuit.

Conducting the Discovery Process

The discovery process is when both the plaintiff and the defendant exchange questions and answers in written form or in testimonial form. This happens outside of court and allows for both parties to go over the evidence that the other has. This allows both parties to follow up on witness statements or any information they may have.

Representing You in the Courtroom

If your case makes it to trial, you can rest assured that our team will be there. We will provide you professional representation in court, ensuring that your voice and case are heard clearly.
